-I have tried to rename ClientRegistry.blob to ClientRegistryOld.blob
-Rebooted my computer
-Switched firewall off and back on
-Downloaded SteamUI.dll at dll-files.com to replace corrupted files

Anyhow, I'm not sure if this is related, but check this article here "Unable to load Authentication Library" -> https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...6579-QRTX-2246 .
Also, I've read several things about the "Failed to initialize authentication interface" error message stating that it might have something to do with which hard drive and folder that Steam is installed to. If Steam is not installed to the default hard drive and folder ("C:\Program Files\Steam"), you might try uninstalling and reinstalling Steam to that default hard drive and folder.
Anyway, I'm not sure as to what the problem could be, but the above is a lot more sensible (and less brainless) than Steam's technical "support" usual answers of; "update your video drivers", delete and reinstall everything, delete the "RandomFile.ext" from your Steam folder, and the like!
...and now I'm on a rant 'n' roll...
Three guys are driving a car in the desert on a road trip. One guy is an electrical engineer, one is a chemist, and one is a MicroSoft technical "support" representative.
The car's engine breaks down and completely stops, so they get out of the car to try to troubleshoot the problem.
Being that the electrical engineer has a background of electrical related stuff, he says:
"I think the problem is due to the engine's electrical system. If you carefully look at the electrical system, I'm SURE we can get the car running again."
The chemist says:
"I think that the problem is with the mixing of the fuel and air ratio that is fed into the combustion chamber. SURELY the problem is with the carburetor or fuel injectors in the engine."
The MicroSoft technical "support" representative scratches his head and says:
"Let's close all of the windows, get out, and then get back in again. Then we'll open all of the windows again, and MAYBE it will work!".
Sums it up quite nicely...
